Grape-Flavoured Progressive BCAA Powder
There’s nothing like the feeling of having pushed it to the limit and left it all at the gym. But training that hard can cause your muscle machine to stall. It starts a complex series of events called the inflammatory cascade that can stop muscle growth for days, leaving you overtrained, weaker and smaller.
AGENT•M grape-flavoured powder helps throw the brakes on inflammation and gets your muscle building in gear. How? With a complete formula that includes systemic enzymes, unique complexes and11,000 mg of BCAAs in every serving, more than any other BCAA supplement we’ve ever heard of. It’s scientifically shown to reduce post-training muscle inflammation by 63%.
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) include leucine, isoleucine and valine. BCAAs are needed for the maintenance of muscle tissue; they are also needed during times of physical stress and intense exercise.
Periods of physical stress, such as intense weight lifting and long distance running can create a catabolic state in which muscle tissue is broken down. In these situations, supplemental BCAAs—particularly leucine and its derivatives ketoisocaproate (KIC) and hydroxymethylbutyrate (HMB)—can be beneficial in reducing protein breakdown. Nonetheless, BCAA supplements may reduce muscle loss and speed muscle gain. BCAAs may also be useful to anyone wanting to prevent muscle breakdown.
